This copolymer acetal grade, containing a metal detectable additive, has been specifically tailored for use in the food processing and packaging industries where it can easily be traced by the conventional metal detection systems installed to detect contamination of the foodstuffs (results may vary depending on the sensitivity of the metal detection system used).
Acetron MD presents good mechanical strength, stiffness and impact strength, and it also features a food contact compliant composition.Acetron® MD is a wear-resistant POM (acetal) that provides a unique combination of light weight, chemical resistance and ability to perform in moist/wet applications – while being fully metal detectable to >27mm3. Acetron® MD allows food processors and packagers to gain the efficiencies that polymer wear materials provide and while minimizing their investment.
Acetron® MD is detectable with existing equipment present in most processing lines. Quadrant has delivered a full line of metal detectable (MD) materials that meet the various needs within the food, medical and pharmaceutical production environment. Acetron® MD has been successfully used in meat and poultry processing as well as dairy and cheese production.
